South Australian authorities have issued a coronavirus quarantine alert to those who attended the Intensive English Institute at Flinders University from November 13 to 28.
Visitors to the Adelaide campus and their close relatives are required to self-quarantine for 14 days as directed by the health department.
Stay up-to-date with SA Health Minister Stephen Wade and Chief Health Officer Nicola Sprie on Sunday afternoon.
Authorities also urge those who visit Flinders University’s Start Campus at the same time to take the test as soon as possible.
Additional locations where visitors need to take the test at 9:30 am on Sunday are Big W Brickworks, Torrensville (Sunday, November 22nd, 12.15 pm-12.50 pm), Foodland Norwood (Sunday, November 22nd, 1.20). pm-2 pm), Kmart, Kurralta Park (Sunday, November 22nd, 2:45 pm to 3:10 pm).
The directive follows the identification of a man in his thirties who was infected with the virus while attending a lab class on Saturday.
He and the children of the former family at the heart of the Parafield cluster in Adelaide were two newly diagnosed COVID-19 cases by SA.
The child was already quarantined and did not pose a danger to the public, said chief health officer Nicola Sprie.
Professor Spalier said the student and his family were also quarantined before they became positive, but his infection confirmed the decision to seek self-quarantine from accidental contacts.
“The information I give you today shows how contagious this virus is,” she told reporters on Saturday.
“This person was considered a casual contact rather than a close contact, and we have a complete backup of the information we have already provided to people.
“Some people have been infected with fairly short contact.”
The diagnosis brought Parafield to 33 clusters, but Professor Spurrier said he was worried that unidentified cases might still be widespread.
Australians must be at least 1.5 meters away from others. Check the jurisdiction limits for collecting limits.
If you have a cold or flu symptoms, stay home and call your doctor or contact the Coronavirus Health Information Hotline (1800 020 080) to arrange a test.
